LOS ANGELES -- California teachers earned an average of about $85,000 per year in salary and benefits last year, while 100 superintendents made more than $250,000 each, according to data provided by hundreds of school districts statewide.
The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday (http://lat.ms/1ri076d ) that a new database has been released online that allows users to search and download detailed employee compensation figures for superintendents, teachers, principals and other staff members at school districts.
The figures are part of Transparent California, which compiles compensation data for a variety of public sector employees. The education section of the website has more than 581,000 individual compensation records from last year for about two-thirds of districts statewide.
It is operated by the California Policy Center, a Tustin-based, nonpartisan think tank.
